When I thought I was getting a dirty weekend this was not what I had imagined. The premises look a little neglected from the outside. We had to enter through a run down bar area, wait for some one to see and were shown to our room. The room was basic which is what I would have expected. The Bathrooms were of a good standard but everything seemed grimy. The beds were poorly made and I am afraid my suspicions were that they had been slept in before. We headed out for a walk around the lovely town of nairn then returned to the hotel for a meal. The food was excellent but again the surroundings were dark and dirty, you were constantly being met with the smell of the toilets. The staff were friendly and helpful, although hard to identify as they did not wear any type of uniform all of which seems to complement the shoddiness of the surroundings. "james??" was particularly helpful and offered us advice on days out and attractions in the area. Breakfast was acceptable if not a little neglectful, the adjoining coffee shop was a nice little idea; The plusses were Location, Parking and Food. Just feels as though the whole premises are un loved, dirty and perhaps just a hobby? Never properly met the owner whilst there, but from what I am reading just as well!!
